In 1890/91, Sunderland were accepted into the Football League and managed to win the League championship in the 1891/92 season. This began a period of huge success for the club who retained their title in the following season and then won it again in 1895, 1902 and 1913. The initial pre First World War period saw Sunderland achieving consistently high League finishes without actually winning everything. However, they eventually managed to secure their 6th and final League Championship to date in 1936 with all time record scorer Bobby Gurney being extremely prolific. The following season saw the club lift the FA Cup for the first time in their history with a 3-1 win over Preston North End.
This proved to be the last success for quite some time as the team slowly declined leading to their relegation in 1958 to division two. Following six years in division two, Sunderland gained promotion back to division one in 1964. After making little impact in the top division, the club once again sufferred relegation to division two in 1970. It was in division two that Sunderland created their own piece of history by becoming the first club outside the top tier of English football to win the FA Cup. In 1973, the team faced overwhelming favourites Leeds United at Wembley. An Ian Porterfield goal in the first half and a miraculous save from Jimmy Montgomery in the second half helped the team managed by Bob Stokoe to a memorable triumph.
